However, there is a possibility that the PiP mode might not make it into the final tvOS update very soon, given that it was not announced at Apple’s recently-held WWDC 2019

Apple has added the Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode on the developer beta of Apple TV’s operating system tvOS 13.

The feature would allow users to watch shows on the Apple TV app while navigating and multi-tasking around the device and its operating sytstem, 9TO5Mac reported on Monday.

The PiP mode was first introduced by Apple for iOS 9 as a multi-tasking feature for iPad.

The feature lets users start a video in full-screen, then switch apps and continue watching the playing video in a thumbnail.

Apart from the PiP mode, tvOS 13 includes several new changes to the Apple TV like a redesigned Home screen with new Top Shelf experience.

The updated tvOS also comes with added multi-user support to let families have separate Watch Next queues to avoid interference with each other’s recommendations.

Apple on Wednesday brought its wireless AirPods Pro with active noise cancellation feature for Rs 24,900 to India.

AirPods Pro will be available through Apple Authorised Resellers on Apple devices running iOS 13.2 or later, iPadOS 13.2 or later, watchOS 6.1 or later, tvOS 13.2 or later, or macOS Catalina 10.15.1 or later.

AirPods with charging case are available for Rs 14,900 and AirPods with wireless charging case are available for Rs 18,900.

Customers can order the standalone wireless charging case for Rs 7,500, the company said in a statement.

AirPods Pro features an all-new lightweight, in-ear design.

By opening the charging case near an iOS or iPadOS device and giving it a simple tap, AirPods Pro are immediately paired to all the devices signed into a user’s iCloud account, including iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV and iPod touch.

Each earbud comes with three different sizes of soft, flexible silicone ear tips that conform to the contours of each individual ear, providing both a comfortable fit and a superior seal, a critical factor in delivering immersive sound.

“Active Noise Cancellation” feature on AirPods Pro uses two microphones combined with advanced software to continuously adapt to each individual ear and headphone fit.

This removes background noise to provide a uniquely customised, superior noise-canceling experience that allows a user to focus on what they’re listening to.

The first microphone is outward-facing and detects external sound to analyse environmental noise. A second inward-facing microphone listens toward the ear, and AirPods Pro cancel remaining noise detected by the microphone.

Noise cancellation continuously adapts the sound signal 200 times per second, said the company.

AirPods Pro delivers superior sound quality with Adaptive EQ, which automatically tunes the low- and mid-frequencies of the music to the shape of an individual’s ear.

Transparency mode provides users with the option to simultaneously listen to music while still hearing the environment around them.

Switching between Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency modes is simple and can be done directly on AirPods Pro using a new, innovative force sensor on the stem.
